Medicare financing reform: a new Medicare premium.

K. Davis, D. Rowland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The original and continuing promise of Medicare can be preserved only through a complex package of fiscal reforms. Central to this should be a merger of Hospital Insurance and Supplementary Medical Insurance into a single Medicare trust fund, financed in part through income-related beneficiary premiums. Benefits could be expanded, while improving access and equity.
